Online math tutoring will help you with your math class. Perhaps you want help in the privacy and comfort of your own home. Or, you are busy and want to use your time most efficiently. Another possibility is that you could be self-motivated. If any or all of these describe you, you are a good fit for online math tutoring. Mcstutoring can help you with your math class from pre-algebra all the way through calculus 2.
Personalized Help With Online Math Tutoring
Math classes can be frustrating. Often, you need just a little clarification, a little help to understand what’s happening. With online math tutoring with mcstutoring, you can have professional guidance tailored to your needs. During your session we can screenshare your homework problems and you can work on them. You’ll be guided through the proper method for solving them.
For particularly difficult problems, you can take a screenshot of your question. By posting it to your online interactive whiteboard, you’ll be able to archive it. That way you can refer to it in the future. Once you’ve posted a question to your board, you can access it via any electronic device. That means you can use your phone, Ipad, desktop, or laptop to see your posted problems. We’ll also work through them together and you can annotate everything as you see fit. This is tutoring for your online math class tailored to you. Why not make the choice that best fits your needs?
Help Between Your Sessions
You’ll also be able to screenshot questions from your math class between sessions. That way, we’ll be able to see all the math problems you had questions with. And you’ll be able to see these anytime.
Most students appreciate the easy access to their notes.
Oh, and you can post one question between each session for one-day help. With this, you post your question to your board. Then, text or email me that you’ve posted it. Next, I’ll post notes to your problem to help you get started. Many students appreciate this, especially if they need help with only one problem between sessions.
Online Math Tutoring Is Convenient
Perhaps you’re too busy to drive to sessions. Maybe you’re too far away. Still, you can have help with your math class.
So long as you have access to a touchscreen computer, you should be fine.
Ideally, you’d have a you can use a Wacom tablet, available from Best Buy or Amazon.
You might not need a Wacom tablet if you already have a touchscreen laptop or Ipad (tablet) with a stylus.
A note about the stylus: even an inexpensive one will help a lot. You’ll be able to write on your board just as you would with a pen onto paper. Don’t worry about a fancy one, either. The cheapest ones work fine for online math tutoring.
One other option is a Mac touchpad. If you have good penmanship, this could actually work. One of my students uses it and I was surprised when she told me she was using a trackpad.
How To Communicate During Your Online Math Tutoring Session
As for communication, we can talk by phone. This is the easiest option. But, if you prefer, you can use Facetime, Skype, or Google Hangouts.
We want to focus on your math work, so please don’t let the video image be an obstacle. I’m rather tuned in to verbal cues, so most of the time I’ll be able to identify when you’re struggling with a problem solely by listening to your voice.
Online Math Tutoring For Your Online Math Class
Perhaps your math class uses Aleks, Khan Academy, Pearson MyMathLab, or Edgenuity for its online component. Or, it could be a fully online math class. Maybe you’re homeschooled and just want some direction in learning and then mastering the material. Staring into dozens of examples on the screen without being able to communicate with a live human being can be frustrating for anyone. This is what causes many students to go from liking math to disliking it, or worse.
We can change that. By screensharing your online math class and using an online whiteboard, we can both see the problems you are working on. Or, you can screenshot them onto the whiteboard. That way, not only do you work through the problem quickly and correctly, you will have it archived. Then you can access your questions and work so you can prepare for tests and quizzes more efficiently. You can mark your notes by topic and zoom to the ones you need to review.
You can use online math tutoring not only for your online math class, but also for in-person math classes. More and more classes, even at the college level, are incorporating math labs in the form of an online math course. We at mcstutoring.com can help you whatever online math class level you are taking up to and including Calculus 2 (AP Calculus BC).

How Online Math Tutoring Works
Online math tutoring with mcstutoring is straightforward. At first, we will be working together on your math homework. You will write the math problem and I will guide you through it.
You will find this more helpful than most approaches. At any point, you can ask questions or take a moment to absorb the process. All the online math tutoring is geared to you, the student. You can ask to go slower or faster. Whatever pace you need at the moment, we can accommodate.
At first, I might do the majority of the writing. This is normal, especially if you are struggling. Once you regain your math mojo, this changes. You will then do most of the writing. At that point, you will be setting up the math questions and showing your work. I’ll jump in only if you have a question or make a mistake. As you progress, you’ll be doing most of the work and asking questions for clarification or asking if it’s the correct formula you’re using.

One student even showed his work from his phone to his teacher. She accepted it for credit. This saved him the need to transcribe it. He was ecstatic!

Second, you can schedule sessions for 30 or 60-minute increments. Sometimes students have only a few questions they want to cover. The availability of 30-minute sessions allows for them to set these short sessions when they need. Also, if your student needs a 90-minute session, you can schedule a 90-minute session. Students appreciate the flexibility of scheduling.
Fourth, you will receive reminders about your sessions. You will receive an email confirmation when you set a session. Then, on the day of the session, you’ll receive a text reminder. This helps you keep on track with your scheduled sessions.
Third, payment is a breeze. You can pay via PayPal using the scheduler. If you already have a PayPal account, you are fine. If not, PayPal accepts credit cards and even checks. Should you have a balance in your account at the end of the school year, you will be refunded the remaining balance.
